I go for 'C'. 'in the form of carbon dioxide' modifies acquiring carbon, it does in 'C'. 'D' is out becase Plants doesnt have a verb. in a,b, and e the second clause seem modifying fungi.

wats OA??

OA is C. However, in C the comparision is between "Plants" and "Fungui at acquiring carbon", which is incorrect.
Could anybody clarify?
Thanks,

You are comparing fungi with plants in terms of efficiency.
You are not comparing palnt's efficiency with fungi's efficiency.

So, 'Plants are efficient than fungi' is correct

Hope that clears :)

I am still not catching your point. Im not saying that we are comparing plant's efficency with fungi's efficiency, but that the comparision in C is between "Plants" and "Fungi at acquiring carbon", which sounds bad for me.
Please clarify.
